Jersey Post issued a Man of Steel stamp collection to mark the film's release. The set of six stamps feature a number of innovative production techniques, developed by Cartor Security Printing in France. Each technique pays tribute to the Man of Steel’s super powers and are brought together for the first time in one issue.

The Man of Steel's most famous superpower is his ability to fly, depicted here on the 55p transparent stamp that features a dramatic mid-air image.
Featuring a dramatic image, this gleaming 60p stamp is printed on flat simili silver foiling, reflecting the Man of Steel's incredible strength.
The unique 68p stamp is printed with thermochromic ink; when warmth is applied, for example by holding it with your fingertips, the earth is revealed behind the Man of Steel.
Crushed granite taken from just one pebble on Beauport beach, which is Henry Cavill's favourite place in Jersey, is applied to the face of each 80p thermographic stamp to give its rough, tactile finish.
GLOW IN THE DARK STAMP
Printed with glow-in-the-dark ink, the 88p stamp reveals a hidden message from the Man of Steel's Kryptonian father, Jor-El. The words are visible only in darkness.
